Backlit Display Upgrade

Before you begin, remove the following:

  • Rear cover
  • Main battery
  • Keyboard cover
  • Old LCD display

Caution: Review the ESD precautions in Bulletins/ Safety.

Caution: Remember to replace the battery cover after removing the main battery. Failure to reinstall the cover leaves power connected to the logic board. Removing and replacing modules with power available could damage new and old modules.

Backlit Display 8-Wire Cable

Caution: If a RAM disk is present, be sure to save its contents before beginning the backlit display upgrade. Otherwise, the contents of the RAM disk will be lost.

1 Connect the backlit display 8-wire cable to the ROM card.

2 Insert the ROM card into the ROM slot at the back of the logic board. The card fits only one way— with the connector facing forward.

3 Wrap the 8-wire cable around the front of the center post.
